It’s Tough Being a Girl

Many of the discussions that exist around gender in the Muslim community, both in the United States and abroad, have not fruitful. In this khutbah, Imam Latif speaks about the need for Muslim women to empower themselves through knowledge and also discusses how Muslims on a whole have failed to treat their women with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

    Salam Alaikum yo,

    What is the gender opposite of the word “guy”?
    What about the word “boy” ?

    Should we fret about semantics?

    Love this khutbah.

    To anyone still having problems hearing, please note that the audio in the video comes almost entirely from the left speaker.

  12. Ivana says:

    He talks about women getting out there and getting themselves educated about their deen. That’s great! But my question is how can women get authentic knowledge is most of the scholars they study from are men? So, aren’t we trapped again to get their opinion, their interpretation on the knowledge available?
